Gerald’s iconic drawing of Margaret Thatcher as the ‘Torydactyl’ inspired David Martill, a Portsmouth University palaeontologist, to name the newly discovered cousin of the pterodactyl after him. The new pterosaur species has been called Cuspicephalus scarfi, because the fossil’s unusually pointy head reminded Dr Martill of the cartoon.
